Nothing Going as Planned

But it's my fault.

My plans were to get my Be Attitudes Quilt completed by tonight so it could be hanging in my classroom tomorrow when students arrived. But . . .

I was sluggish when getting up this morning. Eyes were tired and bags under my eyes (very unusual for me). So I decided to use today to piddle around and get some rest. Larry and I went to the local sale barn, not the actual cow sale--but the flea market held with the sale. We didn't really find anything. Anything interesting was more expensive then it was worth.

We decided to go eat breakfast.

I noticed Larry was walking funny, so I asked him if he needed to go to the chiropractor. He did so I decided to go also. If I don't go for an adjustment each month, after about 3 months I am stiff when I get up to walk. I have decided I would just as soon not be stiff and sore if I don't have to be.

By the time we got home it was almost 12. I decided to sit outside under the patio with the fan blowing and read. I knew I would get sleepy and fall asleep reading because it was so warm. And I did.

I need to sew the buttons on my Be Attitudes quilt and I wanted to do that while watching TV so I put it on hold. Which brings me to the fact that this Friday is the . . .

hosted by Handmade by Heide and Crafty Vegas Mom so I will have an opportunity to finish it this weekend. Hope you can join us.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. Hey Vivian! I'm joining in on Friday -- my first time! I say don't sweat not finishing it -- your student will have something to look forward to! :)

  2. I'm too tired to join in. I spent all day doing the stitch in the ditch on my monkey quilt, and it's still not done. I think I'm going to read the rest of the night!

  3. I thought of you today. I hope you had an enjoyable first day. Don't worry about the quilt. It is better late than never. Good night! Lisa

  4. Oh by the way. I am planning on joining in on the Friday night sew in. I am excited about the sewing but I am having a little trouble posting her button for FNSI. I copy it and paste but I don't know which "gadget" to use or how to do it. Bummer!
